All Good Things... (APRIL FOOLS)

Sorry folks, but this is going to be that kind of post.

Unfortunately, I just can't work on Cursed anymore. If it hasn't been obvious from the last few weeks, I just haven't had the time or the inclination to do so. I've been trying to tell myself that it's just a temporary thing, that my time will free up, but it hasn't happened, and I think I may have lost that creative spark that pushed me to work on Cursed whenever I could.

I know no one likes to hear about a game designer quitting before the project is done, but I have to be honest with myself, and the honest truth is that I just don't want to work on Cursed anymore. So, sadly and unfortunately, it's the end of the line.

But I have posted an unlocked version of Cursed for download, so that if someone wanted to actually try to finish off my massive pile of code, they can do that. You can download it here.

I might announce my next project here, but for now, I'm going to do what I've been doing, which is taking it easy and getting ready to move.

Edit: Of course it isn't real. If I give up now, the trolls have won. And you all know how I hate letting trolls win.

This next month or so WILL be horribly chaotic, because I am actually moving, and not a short distance either. But hopefully I'll still get some time (somewhere) to work on Cursed. And then it'll be May! And oh god, my birthday, nooooooo.

  1. Well... fuck. Still, it's better to work on what you want than forcing yourself to work on something you hate. See you on your next project!

  4. If this is an April fools joke, well played, you monster.

    If this is for real...then I'm obviously not happy to hear it, but I do appreciate all of the work you've done.

  7. Anyone who downloads the unlocked version he provided knows the truth.

    I'll be looking forward to his next project when he gets settled in after taking care of everything else on his plate.

    It's been a great ride thus far. Thank you for everything you have provided for us.

    Cheers.

    Very funny

  13. For a moment there... a little part of my soul died...

    http://www.nooooooooooooooo.com/

    And then I checked the date... and that piece of my soul was confused as to whether to laugh, cry, or go find a blunt object to beat you with. Good one man!

  14. Noooooooooooooooooo.... wait, what day is it? I hate you so hard right now. I died a little inside.

  15. I've only been messing with the final build for a little bit, but damn was this commented out stuff for Genevieve actually planned to be implements or just cut content? I understand if you don't want to talk about it, (having to abandon a project is a tough experience) but wow that was a total left turn and it honestly made me uncomfortable. Specifically the basement event, and then what you find in the woods

  16. Knowing you and knowing today's date, I just checked TFGamesSite, before writing anything, or download anything or something like that... XD

  19. Dammit 2 for 1 today XO that's twice I've been fooled....I hate April 1st

  20. As I said before u had to do this long time ago. This engine kills any motivation to make games. As I know there is only 1 game maker who succeed in this hard work. And by the way... looking at how you wright sex scenes... it is almost looks like you don't like it. So maybe your next game should be non erotic? Whatever choice you make I hope that now you are much more experienced than before, you know that people donate only if they get sufficient amount of content, you know that you need your own engine and you know that whatever you u need to love it.

    Wish you good luck

  21. Man, first Fenoxo putting scat into the final CoC build, and now this. Certainly a memorable April the 1st.

  22. Wow.. you got me big time. I was sad.

  23. Kind of surprised this is a joke, you just don't seem to have the spare time to spend on this, and what time you do spend on this could probably be better spent elsewhere.

  24. Where is a copy of the game?

  25. one of the better pranks ive seen today. good job my friend.

  26. I actually fell for it for a while. Read the update, got sad, played some Borderlands 2 for about an hour. Then I was like "Wait... Ooooooooh."
    You're a monster, by the way.

  27. just to save face when I posted it was abour 11:45pm in my time

  28. Phew, nearly got a heart attack before I finished reading the title.

    This is my first post on this blog, but i've been a stalker for quite some time. Just wanted to say that I really enjoy the game, and I have no idea how you manage to do everything. In the middle of work and exams myself, couldn't imagine what it would be like to create a game on top of that.

    Looking forward to seeing more in the near/far future, and never let the trolls win!

  29. I'm kind of sad it's not really an unlocked release. I've always wanted to fiddle with some of the older releases and see how you did things, really got my hopes up here. D:

    Will wait until you finish the game at some point in the future I suppose, assuming you'll unlock it once it's done that is. (I hope you do.)
